    At least I've got a Wacky Worm in Sardegna added last week. But the info that it opened in April 1987 and that it was bought new from Pinfari (the article I linked didn't mention it by name, but I doubt there was another company building Wacky Worms in that exact same town back in the 80s) somehow got lost in the process.

    Hopefully we'll see the Japanese rides added sometime soon. I guess the only ones that got added so far were the ones in the park with that massive waterslide tower? Well, here's a photo of that, so my post isn't so awfully off-topic. :p

    Those were sent in seperatly. And are in fact led me to find a list of defunct Japanese parks. I put the rest in a big spreadsheet of doom.

    I do love that slide tower though. It must have taken most of the day to get every slide.

    Kersplash which operated at the Washington State Fair is pretty odd. 1 of 3 E&F Miler Industries' "Water Coasters". The others are more normal, but this one seems to have a sort of mobius layout. It'd be cool to see it dueling. https://rcdb.com/2929.htm
    Also, the cars look really funny: https://rcdb.com/2929.htm#p=11453
    It relocated to the Edaville Family Theme Park in Massachusetts but has not opened. https://rcdb.com/11937.htm
    Upon research the opening has been getting delayed since 2016, but hopefully it'll open this year! It would definitely be a rare cred, but I haven't heard very positive reviews of it!

    Oh man i love the old Kersplash. its like a watercoaster version of the old fair ground splash boats.
    I love anything that makes cred nuts question if they can count it. :)

    In other news im just going to leave this Super Glue advert here (The coaster in the video is Togo's rather excellent Bandit)
